Comments

The 'Evolution' Companion Series of Proof Kookaburra coins celebrates the expansion of the frontiers of human knowledge. as we begin the 21st century, it is an appropiate time to commemmorate the tools we have developed to understand our world.
  This five-year series will feature a special design on each year's 10oz proof coin based on the theme of 'Evolution'. The first design is the 'Evolution of the Calendar'. The Gregorian calendar used throughout most of the world today, has evolved from increasingly accurate methods of measuring the movements of the Earth and Moon as they orbit the Sun. for the first time in the Australian Kookaburra proof series, colour has been used to highlight the central design area, which features an image of the solar system, the key element to the development of all calendar systems.
